Mr. Lower says this name is a
dim. of Hal, the nick, of Henry.
The evidence is against this view ;
V. Allkin. There is clear proof
that the original form was Aly-
cock, and that this was abbreviated
to Al-cock. Allen would readily
take the nick. Ally or Aly, and the
suffix -cock was added as a matter
of course. The important point is
to remember the enormous popu-
larity of Allen in the 13th and 14th
centuries, and the absolute cer-
taiiity that both nick, and pet forms
would be in everyday use.
